Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf - lazy snack day

Everytime I visit coffee shops, there are only 2 items that  I prefer to order: a.) Hot or Iced Americano, or b.) Hot Green Tea. I'm not really fond of trying their pasta, snacks, or cakes. 

However, lately I've been seeing Coffee Bean in Ayala Triangle loaded with people eating their daily snack offerings. The other branch in Alabang Town Center also has the same setting.

So one night after work, me and my dad decided to pass by their ATC branch to chill and chat. We ordered their Blueberry Cheesecake, (~130 pesos)
Coffee Bean's sponge-cheesy Blueberry Cheesecake, ~130 pesos
Their cheesecake is not really the cheesy textured one. It has the combination of a cheesy-sponge feeling. If you take a bite, you'll probably be confused if its a cheesecake or a super fine , creamy, moist cake. I think this quality sets it inseparable with other cheesecakes out there.  Add the fact that it is neither too sweet nor too plain. An almost perfect blueberry cheesecake.

Also, we tried Eggs Ben, 235 pesos, served with small cup of coffee or tea.

Midnight breakfast? Sounds weird, but it's yummy! Thanks to my colleague Freya who told me about this great snack. 


Just a bit of info, Eggs Benedict is actually a Western dish that consists of 2 halves of English muffin, topped with ham/bacon, cheese,  poached eggs, and Hollandaise sauce(egg yolk + butter + lemon juice). 

Coffee Bean's version never failed me since their poached egg has a very creamy texture that gives the melt-in-your-mouth goodness. The sauce is also good. It turned out that this is my favorite breakfast as of now (in the absence of Mcdonald's egg muffin)

So there, call a friend now and chill at Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf.
